Bomber Boy manual

After all this time, it turns out the Japanese manual has no semblance of story, nor any exclusive artwork. You would not believe how disappointing this is. We'll never learn the name of the Panel Shop girl now!

Dynablaster manual

If you're looking for any kind of flavour in this, forget it. The story is barely alluded to, there's no detail on the enemies, and there's no artwork whatsoever. What do they think this is, an instruction manual!?

Atomic Punk manual

This is the little gem that gave us the hilarious American storyline. It has unique artwork of most of the enemies and gives them brand new names.

Bomber Boy (GAME A)

THANK YOU! KID!

After completing a stage, Bomberman will rescue the captive robots. Upon returning to the Stage Select, the stage will explode and become a ruin. This scene plays after every stage.



After Faria is completed (and the previous scene plays), Bomberman escapes from the tower as it crumbles and explodes.


The robots celebrate his victory as he marches through a parade.


Standing atop a building, he stares into the horizon as the camera pans. The End.

Bomber Man (GAME B)

CONGRATULATIONS
AT LAST BOMBERMAN
HAS ESCAPED THE
UNDERGROUND EMPIRE
AND BECOME HUMAN

Bomberman runs across the screen. At the halfway point he transforms into Lode Runner; he keeps running and loops around the screen before stopping in the center.

A basic description of the game and its modes. Nothing special.

Mean Machines (issue 7)

Dated April 1991, Matt Regan and Julian Rignall give brief yet positive reviews of the game. Check out those numbers - it got 82% playability!! THOSE NUMBERS ARE SO HIGH.
The two reviewers compare the game to the PC Engine Bomberman, although it was released several months after this game (though given the delayed overseas release of both titles, this error is understandable).
